Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

צֵל m. (f. Isaiah 37:8, compare the form צִלָּה), with suff. צִלִּי (from the root צָלַל No. III) a shadow (Arab. ظِلُّ), Judges 9:36; Psalms 80:11, etc. Metaph. Job 17:7, “all my members (are) like a shadow,” i.e. scarce a shadow of my body remains. Also

(a) used of anything fleeting and transient, Job 8:9 Psal. 102:12 Ecclesiastes 8:13.

(b) of a roof which affords shade and protection (compare Lat. umbra); hence used for protection and defence; preserving sometimes however the image of a shadow, Psalms 17:8, 36:8 Isaiah 16:3, “make thy shadow at noon as in the night,” i.e. afford a safe refuge in glowing heat. Isaiah 23:4, “thou (O Jehovah) art a shadow in heat;” sometimes not retaining the image, Numbers 14:9; Ecclesiastes 7:12. In plur. is used the form צְלָלִים.
